Organizing your Notion workspace for ease of access is crucial, but no matter how well-structured your workspace is, sometimes pages might seem to disappear, ideas get buried, and remembering the right breadcrumb trail (Team > Projects > Tasks > Notes...) can be a challenge.
In such cases, Notion's search function becomes your best ally. One keyboard shortcut can save you time and prevent the frustration of endless page navigation. This tutorial guides you on how to use the 'Ctrl/Cmd + P' keyboard shortcut to bring up Notion's search bar and find anything in your Notion workspace.
Regardless of where you are within your Notion workspace, you can quickly bring up the search bar by using the 'Ctrl/Cmd + P' keyboard shortcut. This shortcut is universal, working on both Windows (using 'Ctrl') and Mac (using 'Cmd').
Now, with the search bar opened, you can start typing in your desired search term. This could be a keyword related to the content you're looking for. For instance, if you remember brainstorming about an 'ideas appraiser' feature, simply type in "ideas appraiser" and the search results will start populating dynamically.
If you're looking for a page or note you recently worked on, filtering by 'Last edited date' can be extremely useful. This will bring up pages that were most recently edited, allowing you to quickly find what you were working on, even if you don't remember its exact name or content.
Sometimes, you might want to limit your search to a specific page or workspace. Using the 'In' filter, you can choose the specific page or workspace within which you want to conduct your search. This can be particularly handy when you know the general location of the information but don't want to manually click through numerous pages or menus.
Menu navigation in Notion is neat and intuitive, but sometimes, especially when you know exactly what you're looking for, using the 'Ctrl/Cmd + P' keyboard shortcut can be a huge time-saver. Remembering this shortcut and understanding how to effectively use the search feature can greatly enhance your Notion productivity. Now you're equipped with the knowledge to find anything in your Notion workspace with ease.
Happy searching :)
